Passenger plane skids off runway and gets stuck on cliff edge in Turkey  


A passenger plane skidded off the runway and was left stuck precariously on the side of a cliff after landing in northeast Turkey.

All 162 passengers and crew on board the Pegasus Airlines’ Boeing 737-800 miraculously escaped injury and were safely evacuated early on Sunday morning following the incident at Trabzon Airport, located in the eastern Black Sea region of Turkey.

Photographs from the scene showed the plane, which departed from the Turkish capital of Ankara on Saturday evening, stuck in the frozen mud.

Footage posted on social media showed panicked passengers being evacuated from the aircraft and another clip appeared to show one of the plane’s engines in the water.

Trabzon Governer Yucel Yavuz said the cause of the accident, which resulted in the airport being closed for several hours, was not yet known.
